The Lakers are confirming that Phil Jackson will return next year to honor the final year on his contract. I am sure landing Ron Artest last night didn't help him make up his mind or anything.
I am overly happy that he decided toach again next year. Yes, I am a Lakers' fan, but more important, I am a Duke fan. I admit that I was a little worried that Coach K might would turn to the NBA to see what he could do. I mean in some ways who could blame him? He has three championships and did a fine job with the Olympic team the past couple of years. I suppose I am a bit selfish in wanting to keep him in Durham, where I feel like he belongs.
Oh yeah, the Lakers are my early favorites again next year now.
